This was supposed to be the Enterprise equivalent of 9/11. I was horrified too, because that part of Florida cannot support 7 million people anyway. Way to pave over the Everglades, future Federation!

It never made a lick of sense.

If you are told that Earth is your mortal enemy.. and they've never heard of you.. then why attack them before you have your main attack ready?  You give up surprise and piss them off.

"I had no issue with the theme song. What I couldn't stand was all the wooden acting."

Even at the time, I thought naming the bad guys "Suliban" was ham-fisted.

Making them sympathetic was probably another mistake, in hindsight.

I remember being excited for this show and I watched the pilot episode and thought it was the best pilot episode for a Star Trek show ever. And then every single episode beyond the pilot during the first season sucked. I never understood how It went from 1 great episode to flaming trash. Suffice to say I never watched it again after the first season. If seasons 3 and 4 were good I'd have never known.

At least the Japanese can say they did have their main attack ready to go when their surprise attack pissed off their enemy.  The Philippines, Malaya, Singapore, Hong Kong, the Dutch East Indies, numerous central Pacific islands; the Japanese managed to thrust pretty far across the Pacific within only a few months after Pearl Harbor.

Of all the problems that Enterprise had, the theme song was one of them. Though the biggest reasons for the show's failure were Berman and Braga. The problems started at the top, and everyone knows that shiat rolls downhill.

Bakula's not that bad of an actor. When they stopped writing him to be speechifying to everyone he was okay, and sometimes even good.  The over-reliance on sex during the early seasons was cringe at best, and repulsive at worst.

Also found it funny that all the 'insane admiral of the week' stories made a LOT more sense when ST 2009 and Disco noted that he became an Admiral, and Starfleet made Janeway a Vice Admiral (per ST Nemesis).

Sure 9/11 changed the show. It changed a LOT of things, and didn't change the things that needed to be changed. The writers wanted to jump on that bandwagon because they saw an opportunity to improve the severely flagging ratings. Some of it worked; there were a fair number of good episodes in there. Granted, "good" for Enterprise is "mediocre" for DS9 but at least it was an improvement. All in all, it might have been time for Star Trek to go away for a while. The Berman/Braga era aged faster than milk post DS9, and needed some fresh minds. Sucks that we ended up getting the JJ movies (granted, 'Beyond' was a good ST film).

The new shows (Discovery, Picard, Lower Decks, the upcoming Strange New Worlds and Prodigy, and finally the rumored Section 31 show with Michelle Yeoh) did/do exactly what Star Trek needed - new blood, new ideas, and new stories. Are they perfect? No. Do they stir rose-colored nostalgia? Thankfully no. Are they "Star Trek" enough? Who knows... what ST means to one person is different than what it means to others. To me, it's an exploration of what it means to be human, exploring and overcoming differences, examining personal growth and change, and working together to achieve a goal. Granted, the execution of that idea has sometimes been a bit poorly written or performed (all the way back to TOS through every iteration) however the IDEA is still there.

If you want Kirk era Trek, the go watch TOS. If you want TNG era Picard, then go watch TNG. You won't get those kind of stories anymore because storytelling has changed. Time has passed and things changed. Why did the Orville fail on regular TV? Same with Firefly? Meanwhile Discovery has been renewed for a 4th season, and a rumored 5th. Picard has already been renewed for a 3rd, and the 2nd has not even been released yet.  Lower Decks I believe has been renewed for a 3rd. Three new series in development. Times are great for Star Trek

4 was miles better starting from telling Daniels to GTFO, but at the same time it has a slavish need to be like "hey look we made a reference to a thing that will happen in one of the later (timeline-wise) shows, aren't we clever"

Admirals were always assholes in all of the Trek shows (except Kirk. Well he was an asshole too but the protagonist so he gets a pass). Janeway immediately got lost and made friends with a group of terrorists and got to be an admiral. They offered to make Picard an admiral but I guess he didn't want to be an asshole.

Why did the Orville fail on regular TV?

Orville didn't fail. They moved it to Hulu but not because it failed.

My 17-year-old kid loves Discovery -- he spent like 10 hours on Sunday rewatching the first season -- and also Lower Decks and he watched Picard faithfully even though he's barely seen a TNG episode in his life (He did watch Voyager as a little boy and still has a bit of a maternal love for Janeway) but sometimes I'll be watching DS9 on TV in the background and he'll be playing a game and he'll say something like "Did people on Star Trek just start talking like human beings in the modern era?" and I'm like, well no, TOS guys were cool like that but then he makes fun of their special effects and I'm reminded that teenagers are dumber than posts.

I strongly agree, especially about Berman and Braga.  I think fresh blood to bring in new ideas was the biggest thing Star Trek needed going into the 21st century.  To me it seemed like Berman and Braga were already running on fumes during Voyager, there were definitely points in Voyager where I was mentally going "didn't you guys already do this on TNG?"

The mirror episode was great, especially the opening theme song. And it explained how the whole mirror universe came about. Without the Enterprise crew preparing Cochrane for the Vulcans' arival, instead of shaking their hand, he blows them away. So really, the "mirror" universe is the "real" universe. The friendly universe was only because of the Enterprise farking with the timeline. Oh and

Voyager to me was like TNG 3.0; at least that is what I think they were going for. They seemed to explore the weekly strange new world; but even in the early 2000's, storytelling tastes were starting to change. Seven and the Doctor worked because they had a story in their growth arcs. That's why DS9 worked so well; having the ongoing growth; though I think there might have been a bit too many 'Seven learns to be more human' stories to the detriment of others.

Lower Decks feels like a good mix of both - there's the weirdness of the new while the core 4 characters have their own arcs. I can't say enough good about Lower Decks, it is brilliant.

I liked Enterprise alright back in the day, but mostly because I was just in college in the early 2000s and liked some Star Trek.  Though I tend to agree with people that noted that everything was kind of out of gas.

Which honestly how couldn't it be, they had three shows roughly overlapping in universe timeline and real timeline producing what 7 seasons each?   So 21 seasons of TV in the 24th century, that's a lot.

I think Enterprise got trapped by a few things:
1.) Only half the cast was anything approaching interesting  (My friends and I have been watching through all the Star Trek films and we have one category for the best worst character in the film.  We call this Category Spock or Phlox)  (Then there is Ensign Merriweather, who might be the least existent member of a star trek crew.)

2.) Star Trek Fatigue (see 21 seasons of recent star trek TV)

3.) Caught between continuity and old star trek storytelling.   Temporal Cold War aside, Enterprise was always stuck in a place where from a continuity standpoint they're hamstrung with what strange new worlds they can discover.   And its not like Discovery which for the most part manages to do more serial story telling and fit in a relatively reasonable way (You know what, let's have some armed conflict with the Klingons, and then lets spend a season investigating one specific anomaly, and then let's fling ourselves to the future so we don't have to worry about continuity any more)   But Enterprise still exists in mostly anomaly of the week.....and sure it was nice to see some old star trek races remembered (Andorians) but it always felt either hemmed in at best, or at worst "You know what, some Borg survived in Antarctica from first contact, because even though we shouldn't be able to have the Borg in the show Enterprise we're gonna!)

But hey in the end what constitutes 'Good Star Trek' is somewhat in the eye of the beholder because I swear everyone has their own show bible for what is and isn't acceptable.

Because, in an idea that Rogue One would end up stealing decades later, the guy who invented the doomsday weapon was secretly opposed to it from the start.

He was the one who talked the leaders into deploying it too soon, precisely to show their hand too soon and give Earth time to prepare.

I argued with a few Trekkie friends at one point that the smart move would've been to use the circumstances of the end of season one (I'm trying really hard to avoid spoilers here) to cast a younger Picard to avoid the age issue.  It could've easily been done and would've fit the sci-fi of the universe at this point for all intents and purposes.

Season 3 was a season long meditation on 9/11.  A few interesting moments, but mostly tedious and the story went on waaaaay too long.  By season 4 it was hitting it's stride and had some great episodes.  The series finale is NOT one of them.  But there were some interesting episodes involving Vulcan, and the Andorian captain they introduced earlier in the series had some standout moments.   They also did a two part episode that takes place entirely in the mirror universe which is definitely worth checking out.

With different showrunners I think it could have really been something special.

At least Michael Burnham wasn't in it :)

I still kinda wish they'd done an episode where Captain Archer starts acting strangely, looking into a mirror at one point, and early on acting like he has no idea where he is and says under his breath, "Oboy." He then acts like he's talking to someone who isn't there and calls him "Al" and makes reference to a "Ziggy."

A lot of the TOS movies addressed the characters/actors having grown old and dealing with their mortality. They did it again when Scotty was on TNG. Then, they did it again for the first TNG movie. And now for the Picard show. It really has become a common Trek theme.

All Star Trek series from TOS to Enterprise are on Amazon, Netflix and Hulu. For now. I forget which of the three large streaming companies seemed to be pulling them out of rotation later this year. There was a thread about it here. It may be that when the deals that Paramount made to have it be widely available expire, they'll keep it at Paramount+.

kbronsito: Mugato: I missed a good chunk of it because I worked nights and didn't bother DVRing it (this was before streaming, kids). Maybe I'll give it another shot. I assume it's on Paramount+.

Season 4 was very good. Iiked Peter "RoboCop" Weller's character.  obviously the finale was as Jolene "T'Pol" Blalock said  "appalling ".


All Star Trek series from TOS to Enterprise are on Amazon, Netflix and Hulu. For now. I forget which of the three large streaming companies seemed to be pulling them out of rotation later this year. There was a thread about it here. It may be that when the deals that Paramount made to have it be widely available expire, they'll keep it at Paramount+.


Enterprise is on Netflix through the end of the month. I've been binging my way through it and have only a couple more episodes to go...

Netflix has that playback speed option, and I've been watching most of them at 1.25x speed. It's not enough to make folks sound like chipmunks, but it does a heck of a job making 'Faith of the Heart' rock.

"Even the most strict of detractors of the show would agree that seasons three and four were the show's best."

I have to disagree. I think Trek works best with the episode of the week format, and while season three wasn't necessarily a serialized story arc, I thought the whole Xindi thing got old pretty quick.
